University of Notre Dame running back Jonas Gray, was having the season many of us expected of him when he committed to the Fighting Irish four years ago. Power and speed -- a wonderful combination for a running back -- and we finally saw it in a GOLD HELMET and the #25 jersey.
Unfortunately, Gray's season came to an end on Saturday with what appears to be a serious knee injury.
Ironically, the very next day a running back with Jonas's hometown Detroit Lions -- Kevin Smith, returned to football after a serious knee injury kept him away from the game for more than a year. And, did he ever come back -- 140 yards rushing, 60 yards receiving and THREE TOUCHDOWNS!
Jonas -- you need to seek out Kevin Jones and chat with him on what he did to make it back, better than ever. Here's a story about Jonas and a second story about Kevin Jones.
ND fans have not seen the last of Jonas Gray on a football field!!!
